Renesse, a town on the island of Schouwen-Duiveland, Dutch province of Zeeland, was the seat of a (Flemish) Mennonite congregation in the early 17th century. The congregation, which bought a house in 1644, where "public Mennonite meetings" were held, and of which Jan Aelwyns was a preacher in 1646, occasionally received financial support from the Rotterdam congregation. It had only a very small membership and died out before 1660.
